Today, I am sharing this amazing Tomato Avocado Salad with Cilantro Lime Balsamic Dressing. It’s super light and full of amazing flavor. Perfect for a summer side dish at your next BBQ or picnic.
Tomato Avocado Salad
Salads are my favorite thing to make during the warm summer months. Overly heavy foods are just not something I crave when it is hot outside. I like to mix it up a bit with our salad choices. Last week, I shared our Creamy Fruit Salad. It’s light and makes a perfect summer side dish.
Another one of my favorite salads is the Creamy Cucumber Radish Salad I added to the blog a few weeks back. Fresh fruits and vegetables during the summer months is what I crave. When we attend a potluck BBQ, I am usually the one who brings a freshly made salad for a side dish.
Tomato and Avocado pair so well together in this Tomato Avocado Salad. I added in a simple Balsamic Cilantro Dressing that adds such an amazing flavor. I served ours with our Cilantro Lime Grilled Chicken. Yup…. we LOVE our cilantro.
Cilantro is one of those additions that most either LOVE or HATE! We are on the love side of the equation. I love the flavor it adds to most dishes.
To make this Tomato Avocado Salad, you will need some fresh tomatoes, a couple of avocados, red onion, English cucumber, cilantro, and a few simple ingredients for the dressing. I prep all my veggies and then prep the dressing. I add the dressing a few minutes before serving and it tastes great every time.
